About this funder:



The Northern Chautauqua Environmental Fund supports programs that promote local environmental education, particularly as it relates to Lake Erie and its watershed.  

A broad range of educational activities will be funded, including educational events, hands-on educational experiences, stipends for internships and lectures. Research projects are permitted, providing that the research is shared in a useful manner.

It is the mission of the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation to enrich the area in which we live and work. To this end, the Foundation has five primary goals:

  • to be a catalyst for the establishment of endowments to benefit the community both now and in the future
  • to provide a vehicle for donors’ varied interests
  • to promote local philanthropy
  • to serve as a steward of funds
  • to provide leadership and resources in addressing local challenges and opportunities
